Case study Costa Rica: Costa Rica’s progress in developing a national land use, land cover and ecosystems monitoring system
The Republic of Costa Rica is a Central American country largely covered by tropical forest that exhibits high biodiversity. The country has made many efforts to conserve its forests and biodiversity, although in most cases forest and agricultural resources have been independently assessed. Nevertheless, the interdependence of forest, biodiversity and agricultural resources has highlighted the need to develop monitoring system that would allow consistent, integrated and comprehensive monitoring of all of these resources.
